Who we are

To develop a transport system for the future, we bring together local government, transport expertise and mana whenua perspectives.

Bringing together our programme partners

Let’s Get Wellington Moving is a joint initiative between:

These organisations are supported by our mana whenua partners Taranaki Whānui and Ngāti Toa.

Our role is to provide a way to work together, so the decisions we make are balanced and consider what else is going on in the city and region. As a group, we discuss each project, agree the best way forward and make sure it's delivered.

Our focus is the area from Ngauranga Gorge to Miramar including the Wellington Urban Motorway, access to the port, and connections to the central city, Wellington Hospital, and the airport. It includes all the ways we get to and around our city, and how the city develops alongside its transport system.

How we work together

We work with our programme partners through our Governance Reference Group and Partnership Board.
